I have been converting pdf file to Word and Word docs to pdfs

Customer Question

I have been converting pdf file to Word and Word docs to pdfs for years. A friend of mine who worked at Dell says it can"t be done???!!! Am I going crazy?? I wanted to make my documens "live" to actually change text in them. I am very low tech, just an average or below average user and I figured out how to do this in 2005. . How can it be that a document manager at Dell could not know this? What am I missing here??
